Excellent survivor bicycle available from an iconic crossover company -
Gendron "Signal" No. 3 young ladies 24" wheel safety bicycle.
Lots of excellent features:
  • DUAL original paint(s)! As described in the catalog it has both the optional orange enamel and the optional maroon over the orange. The effect after 120+ years is close to a pomegranate.
  • "Bolt-on" seat stays as per many high end mfgs.
  • Concealed spoon brake in steer tube functions well *but the handle has broken off long ago as shown.
  • Wood handlebars with killer integral wood grips seemingly all one piece? The grips do not appear to come off.
  • Original 24" wood wheelset
  • Original chainguard, skirt guard fender, and lacing remnants.
  • Lovely solid early saddle
  • Original pedals though one is partial.
  • Fixed gear, block chain drivetrain.
  • Lovely paint matched braces for original chianguard- a feature I have not seen before

Tough to find bicycles this size especially in nice colorful condition, a great addition to any collection trying to show the full breadth of colors of the 1890's.
$1,200 shipped CONUS from Richmond, VA or available for pickup at ML.
I will be traveling to central Mass at the end of this week for any possible delivery options.
These are photos I took some time ago for the purposes of sharing but I can take more detail photos for any serious potential buyer.

This killer little machine is still available and I'm open to trade talks- I've been dabbling in old signs lately as a barter medium?
I may have gone overboard in budgeting the rebuild of this little machine given the demand for juvi lil' girls bikes but man I just can't let a special bike go under-served.
